The San Francisco 49ers are back in a more familiar time zone for Week 3. They travel to face the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, and thanks to daylight savings time (or their lack thereof), Arizona is still in the Pacific time zone right now. The game kicks off at 1:05 p.m. PT. It is the only FOX game in the afternoon, but it will not be getting National Game of the Week coverage. It gets a decent amount of national coverage, but not all of it. And so, we are back to once again break down the viewing options in the United States and around the world.
The folks at 506sports.com are back with their weekly broadcast maps. Their maps cover the entire United States, and accurately portray who can watch each NFL game. This week, much of the West coast, and portions of the area surrounding Pittsburgh will get the game. You can view the camp at the link above, but in the meantime, I'll list out notable media regions that should have the game on FOX:
1. Northern California (Santa Barbara, Fresno and north), San Diego
2. Western Nevada (Reno)
3. West, Central Oregon - including Portland, and I think Eugene
4. Most of Arizona
5. Minneapolis region
6. St. Louis
9. Columbus, Dayton, Cleveland, Cincinnati in Ohio
10. Pittsburgh, Jacksonville, Baltimore, Boston, Rhode Island
And per usual, we have the international viewing options as well. As always, if you have a suggestion we did not include, let me know in the comments.
Canada: CTV Vancouver, Alberta, Saskatchewan; FOX Tacoma, Spokane (A Rouge Point).
